The Mussulman jurists whom the
Sultan frqiaatiy consults explala that Arabl
Pasha, lu so fir as be disobeyed tbe Caliph, U
arebjl au l uacreunnlously treated as such,
but la so f ir w he hi) bseu the defender of a
Voharnoifdau country a?aiiiv the aggrer6lve
deflgns ot Christians ho has merely fulfilled
the duties of a gaol Mussulman, and conse
quently the Caliph cannot make common
cause with nland. The Sultan may punish
Arabl Pasha If soma act of rebellion Is proved '
against blm, but he must not associate him
self with thus a wh wis a to crush I rati Pi&ha
as a defender of Iilam. A correspondent sajs
this will greatly lutlupnca Turkish military ac
tion. POINTS OF DIFFERENCE.
It is understood a difference of views
exists between the Potte nnd Lord Dufferln
respecting the wording of tho proclamation
aejalLi Arabl Pasha. Lord Dutlerlu deMres a
plaia and simple proclamation la furbish and
Arabic, that Arabl Pasha U not a Cherif, but
an ambitious and lawless adventurer. Eng

troops. It U state ! that the qaestlon will be
brought before the conference,

A peremptory message has been sent
by the Sultan to Arabl, ordering blm at once
to give some positive declaration ot submission
to theporte, undor penalty of being dealt with
by Eagland setting under tbe porte's authority.
A dispatch from Alexandria affords no hope
that Arabl will soon give a declaration of sub
mission. It Bays: The report Is confirmed
Arabl has succeeded in having the Sultan de
posed as the bead of Islam by a decree of the
ulemas at a meeting called for tbat purpose
last Sunday. Tbe same decree appoints th
cat rif of Mecca as tbe head of Islam.

A DESERTER'S STORY.
A deserter from Arab! Pasha's forces

Rebel official returns state that their
forces number 86,000 regular?, S3.000 militia,
and O.OCO armed Bedouins. They claim to

Gourke and Prince Dondoukoff Porsakcff have
been ordered to bold troops lu readiness to
embark for Constantinople in tbe eveut of a
col fl ct betweou Turkey acd England. Ad
vices to the London Times ara to the tfiVct
that Itashia Is to occupy the whole of Asia
Minor to the Bypborus. Owing to tbe unde
fended 6tate of that part of Turkey the Russians
could easily do bo without much bioodnbed.
Another diepatch to the Dally Telegraph states
It Is thought the government Is oncentratlng
a formidable army ia tbe Caucasus. These
reports aro (fnclaljy denied by th Raglan gcv

delegated power to Eirl Spencer, lord lieuten
ant of Ireland to act as he sees fit In the matter
ot a release for E. Dwyer Gray, and it U gen

Instruction in Forestry.
The growing Wterest which is being
developed in this country in the culti
vation and preservation of our native
forests seems only to bo a part of a
general movement in the same direc
tion in older countries. Thus a me
morial has just been presented by the
Council of the Society of Arts, London,
to the Secretary of State for India call
ing attention to the great and growing
demand for the Eervices of persons
skilled in forest cultivation and anal
ogous occupations, in India and the
Colonies generally, and to the increas
ing desire on the part of land agents,
land stewards and bailiffs to acquaint
themselves with the scientific and tech
nical treatment of plan tat ious, woods
and forests, as a mean3 of fitting them
for the more satisfactory management
of landed estates in the United King
dom. Tho memorialists believe that
no suitable provision exists at any of
the great centres of instruction in Eng
land for the teaching of natural science
in its special reference to forestry, nor
for the scientific teaching of sylvicul
ture in any of its branches; and are of
opinion that by grafting itinerating
classes for observation of the practical
method adopted in the regularly w orked
forests abroad on classes for scientific
teaching at home, established in con
nection with such a school as already
exists at Cooper's Hill, satisfactory
means could be afforded of enabling
students to obtain the requisite knowl
edge, both theoretical and practical, to
qualify them for entering upon the
duties appertaining to forest manage
ment, wb.etb.er in India, the Colonies or
elsewhere. They therefore express
their earnest hope that steps may be
taken by the Council to establish a de
partment for the teaching of forestry
in the Royal Engineering College at
Cooper's Hill.
One's self-satisfaction is an untaxed

The English "Wheat Crop a Failure.
(from tbe London Times, August 1)
At the close of July it la possible to
forirrsoine estimate of the prospects
fcf the year's haivestWe know pretty
Veil what the harvest at its bebt can
be. Wo sco tho point beyond which
we cannot expect that it will go. How
far it will fall short of this wo have
no means of determinincr. The
weather in August will decide the
matter, anil we cannot predict what
tho weather in Auguat is to be. Rut,
under the most favorable weather con
ditions, the prospects for the coming
crops are by no means universally
good. We publish this morning a full
anu careiui repoit on the present state
of the crops in various ports of the
couutry. it is hopeful in some re
spects.but terribly disappointing in oth
ers. Tho wheat harvest, our corres
pondent says, will be once more below
the average. Ia many places it will
bo very considerably below the aver
age. Tho general report about wheat
is that on good soils the straw will be
good ; that on poor soils it will be bad ;
and that on both good s jils and poor
Hoila the yield of grain will be no
better than it has been during the
last flvo years, or, in other word3,
that it will not nearly amount to a
fair average crop. Tills is bad news
iMletd, but when wo have given it
wo have given the worst. On no
othc-r crop ia our correspondent's re
port quilc :u unfavorable as it ia on
wheat. Tim barley in some parts of
the country is looking well. In Dor
setshiie our correspondent has seen
soruo iin', rich crop-, bi nding in ripe
ness and giving almost certain promise
of a giod malting grain. From Essex
the crops r.ie reported as good. Jn the
Midlands they are less promising, in
barley, as in wheat, the ttraw tcems
likely, on the whole, to be the best
part of the t rop. Tho icld of grain
will bo rather less than the average;
possibly it will not be equal to last
year's yield. "We come next to oats
and beans, and to far brighter prospects
aa far as these are concerned. Oats,
our correspondent says, will exceed in
both quantity and quality the average
of the last seven years. They will bo
good both In straw and in grain. In
potatoes he ha3 observed no disease as
yet, but the real time of trial has
scarcely yet come. August is a dan
gerous month for patotoea, and even
already he has heard reports that in
Scotland and in Ireland, and in some
parts of thi3 countrj', tae potato dis
ease haj begun to show itself. The
hay harvest of tho year is now a cer
tainty, and it is unhappily, a bad cer
tainty. Never has the grass been more
plentiful, and never has the weather
been moie unfavorable to the process
of turning it into hay.
Whatever our wheat may turn out
t ) be, and in whatever degreo it may
fall short of our correspondent's
gloomy estimate, our supply of food is
in no danger. Wo draw thi3 from so
wide an area that we can always
reckon with confidence upon obtaining
it at demand. If the harvest i3 bad in
one part of the world, it is not bad in
all parts, and we get our wheat, ac
cordingly, without much regard to the
seasons. The worst of tho matter is
tlstit England seems just now to be the
particular part of .the world to which
a bad harvest is most certain to come.
The price of wheat is not raised, but
the farmer suffers, and the country
suffers with him. We are not starved,
and we are in no danger of being starv
ed, but ouv home trado is crippled.
Tfce money which ought to be in the
pockets of the English farmer is
transferred to the American farmer.
In spite of free trade, a bad harvest at
homij is so much dead I093 to the coun
try, and this it will always be. The
report of a large harvest in America
will bo good news to everybody else,
but it will not be good news to the
farmer. It will mean for him that his
wheat, which will be small in amount,

even the partial Improvement which
ho has lately secured will not last be
yond the near date when the American
corn ships will begin to arrive and
will tmco again flood our markets with
the golden grain from Minnesota and
the far West. The case is hard, but it
is not exceptional. From one cause
or another our farmers seemalwas
to be under pressure. The one thing
which would certainly bring them relief
would be a bountiful barvet in this
country and a general failure else
where. But this of late has been pre
cisely what they have not obtained.
The best remaining chance for them is
to do more toward adapting their
methods of cultivation to the climate
conditions which they may . expect.
They have begun to move, and seem
ingly m the right direction. Cannot
they quicken their pace? If English
farmers are to thrive there must come
a change somewhere. Either they
must change or English weather must
change. It is only on one or on the
other condition that they can hope to
escape the grave repeated losses which
have gone near to ruin them.

charge moot begin under the ecalp to be or

wonderful dieccverkes, it is found t coDlct of

leam oil is the article which is mnde to wr.rk
f uch extraordinary reeults; but it Is alter the
beatrtfiied article has been chemically treated,
ani;rouipletely deoidized, that it is in proper
condition for the toilet and receives the n-une of
Carbolice. It was tn far off Russia that the
tHc;of ptrolenm upon the bUr were first

tbat a partially baltbeaJed servant or bis when
trimming the lamp?, had a habit of wiping his
oil-besmeareJ bands in his scanty locks, and the
result was, in a few month, a much fioer head
or black, glues?, hair than be ever bad before.
The oil was tried on borte and cattle that bad
lost their hair troai the cattle plague, and the
results were as raoid h they were marvelous.
The manes and tails of home, which hsd fallen

There experiments were heralded to the world,
but the knowledge wai practically useless to
tbe prematurely bald aud gray, as no one in
civilized society could tolerate tbe use of reiaed
petroleum as a drying fur the hair. But the

experiments with the deodorized liquid, on the
human balr and skin, were attended with the
moet astonishing results. A few applications,
where the tulr was thin and falling, gave ro
mprkahle tone and vigor to the scalp and the
hair. Every partlcloof dandruff dlsappearson
